Norvald Dahl Organic Chamber
This drum-less "chamber group" is a unique addition to the world of jazz as well as the contemporary classical tradition. With original compositions, ranging from 12-tone music to poly-rhythmical and poly-harmonic concepts, combined with spontaneous interplay and free improvisation, ´Organic Chamber´ is always fresh and challenges the ear of the listener.
Norwegian born pianist Norvald Dahl (b.1978) is now a master student at the highly acclaimed Norwegian academy of music in Oslo. He has been touring and playing professionally for the past ten years, and is associated with groups like the "Wayne Brasel Quartet" and his own quartet, the "Norvald Dahl trio plus Jon Irabagon"
Jon Irabagon (b.1979) is an award-winning american saxophonist (winner of the Thelonius Monk Jazz Competion among many others), well known from groups like Mostly Other People Do The Killing, Mary Halvorsen Quintet, Dave Douglas Quintet and much more.
Mats Eilertsen (b.1975) is one of the highest ´in demand musicians´ in Europe. He is constantly working and touring with groups such as Skydive, Rubicon and Nils Økland group, and just finished a new recording with his own group ´Mats Eilertsen Trio´ for ECM.
On ´Organic Chamber´ Mats shines with his in-depth knowledge of his instrument and personal touch, creating soundscapes and overtones that highlights the music. Together with Jon, who is also a virtuoso on the use of overtones and tweaking on the horn, they join forces and blend seamlessly with the sounds and overtones of Dahl´s piano. The result is nothing but a truly ´Organic Chamber´ experience.
